Get it ALL coming in - you will NOT see a dime / raise for at LEAST three years; more if you're not working yourself to death. Get your money "up front" and make at least one counter, if needed.

    Phone interview with recruiters first and second round. Final round was a group style interview with a case study. All interviewees were put into small teams and given a case study to review and prepare a presentation with recommendations to "management." Presentation was also given by the small interviewee team. Then after the presentation, one-to-one interviews with those being presented to were conducted.

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IBM (New York, NY) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was a bit longer than usual. It mainly consisted of phone interviews since everyone is remote. I was asked questions regarding my technical and business process background. This consisted of 5 phone interviews prior to an offer being made. Everyone was pretty easy and wanted to understand my background and how it could fit with their current needs.
